(ISS), two leading independent proxy advisory firms which provide voting recommendations to institutional investors, have each recommended that shareholders of First Majestic and SilverCrest vote FOR the respective shareholders resolutions projected in connection with the plan of arrangement following which First Majestic will acquire all of the common shares of SilverCrest.

In First Majestics report, Glass Lewis summarized their FOR recommendation for the Arrangement as follows*: In sum, we believe the projected acquisition of SilverCrest is compriseent with First Majestics growth strategy. In SilverCrest, the Company appears to have identified an attractive acquisition target which will add another producing mine to First Majestics asset portfolio, increasing production, reserves and the Companys cash and working capital position. Moreover, First Majestic anticipates to realize synergies and cost savings following completion of the arrangement. Therefore, the combination is predictable to be accretive to First Majestics NAV, reserves, resources and production on a per-share basis. As a result, the acquisition is likely, in our view, to lead to improved financial performance and ultimately superior shareholder value. Overall, we believe that the consideration represents a reasonable and fair price for First Majestic to pay given the predictable planned and financial benefits and the opportunity to enhance shareholder value. Thus, we believe the transaction represents an appropriate use of the Companys equity capital. Based on these factors, together with the support of the board, we believe the projected share issuance for the arrangement is in the best interests of shareholders.
